Didn't want to leave
Had 4 nights in Veligandu as a treat for our first wedding anniversary. Beautiful island, friendly and helpful staff, amazing food...we had the Jacuzzi Water Villa which was stunning. Snorkelling is pretty decent too, although you need to go a little way out to see the best stuff. Seen a few reviews saying that the island is small.....that's kind of the point, I think. Would definitely recommend, 100%

This journey was so amazing. I had a wonderful time with my husband in Veligandu.
It was so surprising that our room was upgraded from water-villa to jacuzzi water villa. It is so cool. We have 4 nights there. Every night we appreciates moon and stars. All the scene there will give you an unforgettable impression. I like the color of the sea and the splendid sea from the seaplane. In short, it is worth staying in Veligandu.

5 starts resort!!
Thank you Veligandu's staffs for everything. From rooms to foods and facilities. My wife and i went there with a free one night upgrade to water villa jacuzzi. However we were transfer to an island next to it for the first night. The food were amazing and cant really complain about it. Cleaniness of the resort and room are fastactic. We managed to see dolphins with the sunset cruise (amazing).We also paid for speedbot trip for snorkelling. It was my first time that i did enjoyed snorkelling. The view was great and the guide was so professional that he went down to the sea to test current. So he dropped us according to the current that we snorkeled using the current. Believe me it was fun and i dont know how to swim (by only using life jacket). Nice and will recommend my friends to go there.

Great stay
Found Veligandu through AGODA and we got a great deal. 6 nights in an jacuzzi water villa but we would have loved to stay longer. Awesome beach with soft white sand. Great buffet with no two meals being the same. I would return to the veligandu resort in a heartbeat!
